Ten years ago, at the peak of the VRMMO development industry, a game titled "Kiwame Quest" entered the scene with potential like no other. Boasting a colossal total of 10 sexdecillion branches of possible story scenarios, this game pursued ultimate realism, ranging from humanlike NPCs to the perfect replication of all senses and physical abilities. But it soon became apparent that the game was too realistic, and the popularity of VRMMOs in general gradually began to plunge.

At present, due to an accident a few years prior, the high school student Hiroshi Yuuki now immerses himself in full-dive RPGs as a form of escapism. After failing to acquire the latest version of his favorite game, Hiroshi stumbles upon a game shop and meets its beautiful clerk Reona Kisaragi who convinces him to buy a copy of Kiwame Quest so that they can play together.

The first time Hiroshi plays the game, he marvels at the realism it offers. However, his astonishment is short-lived as he sets off a series of misfortunes, quickly realizing that the game is even worse than his already stressful life. Nevertheless, Hiroshi still finds himself logging on again despite his growing contempt for the game. With no do-overs in his current disadvantageous situation, Hiroshi only has one goal—clearing the game!

non spoiler review:
This anime is a cynical comedy on virtual reality anime. With tons of comedy sketches with the MC being the straightman in the show. This anime is not for people who want epic fights or people who loves to get hyped when an MC gets an upgrade or power up.
If you love gintama, isekai ojisan, grandblue or kazuma's straightman comedy then this anime is right up your alley.

Story is unpredictable and unique
Art style is a mix of grandblue and isekai ojisan
Characters are 1 dimensional but the way they mix and interact with different characters makes them fun to watch

Mixed Feelings
I think the best thing about this show is its OP. It’s quite good. Outside that however? Not that big a fan of this show. Maybe over time with more time spent on character development and such I could get into it, but I was just so uninterested in this show.

I think this show sort of fucks around and does so little for so long and per episode that by the time that maybe it’s getting better, the season ends. Maybe fans of the source material enjoy that but I just could not deal with the humor or plot stuff. Felt lowbrow and just ...

[This review is spoiler free!] TL;DR: Full Dive does very few things well, and where it succeeds doesn't make it entirely worth watching. It tries to say it's not like other anime while being exactly like other animes. It's unique enough to be a trashy show you've likely never seen before.

On the surface, Full Dive has a lot of potential. It has a unique premise and follows a slightly-above average character. The MC is an indecisive high schooler who has given up and embraced the world of video games; I'm sure many of us can relate to that. In this sense, you can't help but ...
